, if it indeed does go through. number one it cuts to the medicare advantage reimbursement and that is likely to be included in a final bill. what does it mean for companies and individuals? >> right. so to fund this whole proposal there has to be cuts somewhere or revenue generation. and one of the big places for the cut is the medicare advantage and what this means is it primarily is going to impact the senior folks who are out there in these medicare advantage programs which are different from your typical medicare program in there are much more choices, more options, because of those more choices and options that causes higher cost. so win way to reduce a tremendous amount of cost is to remove this program. now, that will impact the seniors out there who like those choices, they will have less choices but it is one of the sacrifices that the lawmakers have decided as far as how to pay for reform. >> and is this a big negative for insurance companies too? >> it is not -- it depends. each insurance company has a different amount of exposure to medicare advantage. we talked about wellpoint a
. medicare and medicaid services report that u.s. health care spending rose 4.4% to $2.3 trillion, the slowest growth rate in nearly 50 years. health care spending is still accounting for 16.2% of gdp that is up from 15.9% in 2007. >> general motors december sales falling by 13%, larger than analysts expected. phil lebeau is in chicago with more. a lot of surprises today? >> a lot of surprises. gm weaker than expected. we want to go over those numbers from general motors. the vice president for sales from the company's headquarters susan dockerty. thanks for joining us. >> happy new year to you. >> let's go over these numbers. you are talking about the fact you cleared a lot of inventory and retail market share and retail sales you are trending up. let's be honest here these numbers are weaker than wall street wasç expecting. >> i can't tell you that i know what wall street was expecting but our retail business was up 7%. our total sales were down 6% and that was something we were expecting because last december we had a very high percentage of fleet. but this december our fleet
with all of these giveaways to get signed on to a bill that raises taxes and cuts medicare to seniors who deputy on medicare and cause people's policies to go up. >> just to follow up on that. a lot of this race was also about the tax hike component. i mean, scott brown said cap and trade is a tax hike. the health care bill is a tax hike. he's formulating kitchen table populism or pickup truck populism or tea party populism. has your party missed the boat on this? have the democrats now moved way too far left away from center ground? i don't think so, but obviously the party has to sit back and take a very close look at what the people of massachusetts were saying. what they were not saying and here's where i disagree with the senator, is that they don't like the health care plan that they put together in massachusetts which is essentially the outline of the senate plan. in fact, the vast majority of people in massachusetts like what they did in massachusetts and the new senator supports that bill and does not support the repeal of the massachusetts plan which has massive federal subsidie

this proposed 1% medicare payroll tax hike to fund the obama health care plan by including investments, like capital gains and dividends rather than simply wages. now, the wage hike's bad enough. obama care is bad enough. but applying this to investment simply raises the cost of capital, lowers the return on risk taking, and damages prospects for economic recovery growth. what is team obama thinking. the new year tax attack. i've never seen anything so dumb. i'm not surprised stocks sold off today, especially the bank stocks. and i've got to tell you, if these tax hikes actually get through the congress and the white house in the weeks ahead, the stock market is going to sag, no matter how good fourth-quarter profits come in. you cannot tax your way to prosperity. did i say dumb policy? that is my take. extremely dumb policy. now, i want to get some reaction on this point from our guests. we have ssht director for tax and budget policy at the center for american progress, michael lyndon. we also have the "wall street journal's" steve moore. michael lyndon, because i believe in fairness and o

ticket items, the entitlement spending, medicare, medicaid. that's exactly what the president has been working so hard with the congress to put in place some important reforms that will genuinely slow the growth rate of those costs. and that is the most fiscally responsible thing one could be doing at this point. >> ms. romer, final question. 660,000 people dropped out of the work force. what explains that and what happens if they come back in to the unemployment rate? one would assume it will go a lot higher. >> well, you're certainly right on both accounts in the sense that we did see people drop out of the labor force and that is something that tends to happen in recessions. people do become discouraged. and if we start -- when we start to add lots of jobs that will surely encourage some of those, discourage workers to come back in. i think the important thing, whatever effect that might have on the unemployment rate in the short run that would be a good thing. it would mean the economy is expanding, they do see hope, and that is something we'll be looking forward to in the sense of
in the past two tax cuts and medicare prescription drug benefit that were not paid for and the effects of the economic downturn. that is where a deficit comes from. that is why we are making sure we pay for new proposals and working to jump start the economy and get it back on its feet. >> how do you grow jobs at the same time you are cutting spend something. >> again there is a timing issue. in 2010 the primary focus is job growth. 2013 2014, 2015 it is getting the deficit down to make sure we don't imperil job growth and leave enough room for private investment. we have to promote job growth now and look for more efficiencies in the federal government and bring deficits down. >> $150 billion in stimulus working its way through congress. there are critics saying that is throwing good money after bad. because money from the original stimulus hasn't created jobs. >> all credible analysis suggests that the recovery act has spurred economic growth during the second quarter, during the third quarter and into the fourth quarter. created or saved 1.5 million to 2 mi
